The Federal Reserve has conducted the most severe and sudden tightening of the U.S. economy in over forty years. Playing whack a mole instead of chess, it has created a banking and real estate crisis. We’ll report on 17 banks over-exposed to loans on office buildings at 50 percent occupancy or thereabouts, and how their share prices are nosediving. Then we’ll examine the shakier components of the S & P 500 index, what to avoid, and what strategies might be better. Plenty to chew on today…MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
